For the Work of the Ministry

What an Amazing Day. There were 10 tasks being done all at the same time. Once the group got a Holy Spirit Fire to Work as unto the LORD in His Power, things really got done. Like the Macedonians in


2 Cor 8:5


And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.




Plumbing, Welding, Painting Cooking, Carpentry, block work…even the young boys put together the all terrain tricycles the group brought for the children. And at the end of the day there was a little time for a little fun. It could not have been a more profitable or enjoyable work day with this much sweating going on…Amen!

It's been a blessing to be able to follow daily all that is getting done. Praise God for a great report! It rejoices the hearts of us back home. We love you Dad & John!

Love & Prayers,
"Mum" & David

Thank you for putting so much time into the photos. What a joy to see so much work being carried on in light of the intense heat--especially since we are all just now coming out of winter temps.

Tell David Leib his family sends their love and prayers. We miss him.

Hi Elliott and everyone. Building this for the future of the Honduran children is like God preparing a place for the future of His children - eternity with Him. We pray you will endure with patience the unusual conditions. This is a great way to serve and make new friends.

With love from the Parfitts

Hi Elliott and everyone else. Building this home for the future of the Honduran children is sort of like preparing a home for God's children in the future - eternity with Him! We pray everyone will endure joyfully the strange conditions. It's so great to be able to serve and make new friends this way. :-)

With love from the Parfitts

For Elliott Parfitt:

Hi from Geneseo! Have been looking at the pictures on the blog. You are all working very hard in such hot weather. Hope the project is nearing completion, "ja ja ja". Looks like you are having a good time, along with all the work.
Look forward to seeing you in Livingston County after Sunday.

Love, in Christ Jesus,

Nana
